That was my co-op this morning. Everyone brought a cereal box per child and we cut them, flipped them inside out, taped them back together and cut two squares in the front/back.
Then the kids decorated the front of the theaters and made popsicle puppets.
Some people made their puppets into popsicles, some people made their boxes into dioramas, some people made their boxes into monster faces.
The kids worked for an hour making puppets and then all moaned when I said they had 30 minutes left. It wouldn’t have mattered if I had said they had 2 hours left, they still would have moaned. I wish we could stay there all day making puppets, but other people were coming into the library. We didn’t have time to show off the theaters and puppets there, but some of us are going to tape a show the kids made at home and post it on the HS board. Hannah and Grace loved making the theaters because they are going to use them with their finger puppets and LPS figurines.
We went to lunch with some friends and introduced them to Pho. It was funny because one of her kids only wanted the noodles and the other only wanted the meat out of the soup. Also, they both got bobas, but they didn’t like those. Hannah was eyeing the rest of the boba and soup, but I told her no.
We got home and finished cleaning up. I made chicken marsala for dinner and roasted some cauliflower, then I spied some extra lemons and made some lemon bread for dessert. Janice came over and we talked and had dinner, the kids all got to talk to her and then the adults took off for Solid Grounds. I had made a TNO for tonight before I knew that Janice was coming over, so we just invited her to come too. We had some coffee at the shop and talked some more and talked with some new HS’ers and then said our goodbyes. She has to leave tomorrow (she usually isn’t here long when it’s for work), but we had a nice visit.
